Fireworks by train

NEW special later evening trains back to the Tamar Valley and Cornwall make it easy to visit the 2019 British Fireworks Championships in Plymouth by train.

On Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 August spectacular pyrotechnics will illuminate Plymouth Sound as six top firework companies battle it out. Free entertainment starts from 2pm with music, fairground rides and refreshment stalls on Plymouth Hoe. The firework displays generally begin on each evening as dusk falls at 9.30pm. Spectators are advised to arrive early to get the best possible vantage point on Plymouth Hoe. Read more.
